A mineral wine from a chalk-rich soil. More info

The name of this cuvée says all you need to know about the parcel it comes from, since it is indeed the chalk-rich soil that defines its character. Domaine Des Vignes du Maynes has worked biodynamically since 1998, thus every step taken in the vineyard is done with great respect for the plant life. In the winery and the cellar, the activity is carried out following the lunar calendar. The rhythm of each cuvée is always considered so that its best features can be emphasised. This red Mâcon gives off notes of red fruits; it is flavourful and fresh with an intriguing balance. We recommend opening it an hour before tasting, and after a few years in the cellar if possible.

Bourgogne Les Crays Domaine des Vignes du Maynes serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Saucisson brioché, Terrine de Bourgogne, Abondance.

Information about domain Domaine des Vignes du Maynes

Found in Cruzille in the Mâconnais, Clos des Vignes du Maynes is now in the hands of Julien Guillot. This is a particularly old, Burgundy domain that dates back to the 10th century, more specifically to the time when Cluny Abbey was founded by the Duke of Aquitaine. The domain then belonged to many generations of country people until it was bought by Pierre and Jeanna Guillot in 1952. They have never used chemicals, always working as naturally as possible. After passing the torch on to their son Alain, who has played an important role in the promotion of organics in France, his son Julien who joined the domain in 1998 represents the third generation of the family to work at the domain. The vineyard spans 7 hectares planted with Pinot Noir, Gamay and Chardonnay. The harvests are carried out by hand with careful selection. In the winery, everything is done naturally with very little intervention: fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts, and no sulphur or additives are used. The red wines undergo semi-carbonic maceration with a mini-punching over and light stirring. They are matured in barrels and there is no filtering at the end. Julien Guillot wishes to make ‘sharing wines’ and he succeeds wonderfully with his high-quality and uncommonly elegant cuvées
